porblen hatching Dorking egg

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi,

I have incubated two batches of Dorking eggs and only one chick survived. The rest of them had some early development, some with medium development and a couple were developed but they did not hatch. Any feedback on this?  I am also wondering if anyone knows much about the Dorking breed.

 

This is not my first incubating experience.  I usually have a very good hatch rate.

Thanks!!

How many eggs did you incubate?
How many were clears?
What was the humidity?
What was the temperature?
Still or forced air incubator?

The first batch had 20 eggs, 7 were clear.  The humidity was at 30 to 40% until day 18 then raised to 65 to 70%.  Temp was 99.5 and in a forced air incubator with a turner.

 

The second batch had 23 eggs, 8 were clear.  The rest was the same.

 

Thanks!
